Kelly Stevenson Reed


Kelly Stevenson Reed was born and raised in Chicago, but now lives in northeast Ohio with her husband and son. Kelly has been writing screenplays, stories, poems, and random thoughts in several worn notebooks as long as she can remember. She had a couple of short, quirky screenplays produced in the early nineties, but pretty much took a break from writing after that. Kelly’s poetry was recently published in the Greensilk Journal and Foliate Oak.

Smashwords Interview

How would you describe your writing?
Eclectic. I've alway thought of my musical taste as being eclectic. In other words, all over the map, and even then, you may even need a few more maps to include everything. And I think my writing is the same way.
What do you read for pleasure?
I’m into pop culture, so I read a lot of animation, film and television history. I love the freedom of Jasper Fforde, and I’m always open to rereading Jane Austen. While stepping over several stacks of books to reach an actual bookshelf, I make sure that I still have my laptop open, tabbed to usually no less than five articles at a time.
